FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, cheap revia online Brandon Lloyd might have been doing handstands after the Patriots’ 42-14 blowout win over the Houston Texans Monday night at Gillette Stadium.
Lloyd had just resurrected himself with seven catches for 89 yards, cheap revia online including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Cheap revia online He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Cheap revia online Two touchdowns in the biggest game of the season and Lloyd acted like he’d done nothing more than buy a can of Coke at 7-Eleven. Cheap revia online It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, cheap revia online he was asked?
“I don’t know, cheap revia online” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, cheap revia online he was reminded, cheap revia online as if he didn't realize the Texans, cheap revia online who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, cheap revia online were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, cheap revia online the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, cheap revia online but we still have things we need to improve on, cheap revia online” he said. Cheap revia online “I think we had a great week of practice and we did the things that were necessary to come out and execute well and it was a team effort.”
Lloyd was obviously practicing the Patriots’ way of saying something but saying nothing, cheap revia online which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Cheap revia online It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, cheap revia online the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, cheap revia online Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Cheap revia online Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, cheap revia online and he was off for the end zone, cheap revia online giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Cheap revia online “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, cheap revia online” he said, cheap revia online “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, cheap revia online and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, cheap revia online” said coach Bill Belichick. Cheap revia online “That was great protection, cheap revia online great run fake, cheap revia online and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Cheap revia online The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, cheap revia online but also for Lloyd. Cheap revia online A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, cheap revia online capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Cheap revia online In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.
There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, cheap revia online and even his ability to mesh with Brady, cheap revia online so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Cheap revia online Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Cheap revia online He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, cheap revia online either. Cheap revia online “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, cheap revia online we’re just executing the plays. Cheap revia online I haven’t seen the film, cheap revia online but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, cheap revia online though, cheap revia online and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, cheap revia online only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, cheap revia online Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, cheap revia online” he said, cheap revia online when asked about that play. Cheap revia online “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Cheap revia online Pretty much all I know right now. Cheap revia online As long as it puts points on the board. Cheap revia online It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, cheap revia online not too low, cheap revia online that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Cheap revia online We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Cheap revia online “I don’t know. Cheap revia online I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, cheap revia online” he said.
